Direct from Tribeca: The Swimsuit Issue
Sweden, 2008, 102 Minute Running Time
Digital presentation - Inspired by such pick-yourself-up Britcoms as The Full Monty and Calendar Girls, this cute comedy deftly mixes slapstick with insights on such issues as gender rivalry, homophobia, and the unfashionability of middle-aged men. Unemployed, divorced, and estranged from his daughter, Frederik (Jonas Inde) is stuck in Loserville when a botched prank gives him the idea to mold his motley buddies into Sweden's only all-male synchronized-swimming team, with the World Cup finals in Berlin as the seemingly unattainable goal.
